    Hi Geo

    As always, great service from Dunc ..:thumb: glad you've got it sorted and are enjoying the alco pops :Wink:

    when you get a free minute, could you fill in a Report A Crime form ? .. might just help stop someone else getting robbed.. don't need to be specific, just the autoroute and rough location.. cheers.. enjoy your stay :Smile:

    Hi Geo.
    Sorry to hear about the burglary. Where did it happen?

    Good to know you are restored with the old vino and some bangers and mash!

    Can you send us some sunshine?

    Well we are awake adter a fantastic spontaneous Funsters BBQ.

    The weather remains baking and I am sitting outside Ruth and Tony Rv drinking a coffee!!.

    On Arrival yesterday I found my bike rack had practically disconnected itself from the van, and one of the bikes had smashed the back window. :Eeek:

    So all the bikes will have to go in the garage and we will then have to put the rest of the kit inthe van.
    It appears to of happened when I tried taking off over a French Speed ramp at 60mph, I just didn't see it Gov :Laughing: or it could be I misunderstood the speed hump thing, why don't they call it a slow hump:thumb:

    quick update

    Hi all

    Today saw the remaining funster Eyuplad (Mike and Sally) arrive just after breakfast. They arrived just in time for the 12 noon drinks courtesy of Bob and Di. We were also able to meet the Mayor and some of the locals who were also invited to the get together to meet the rally funsters. We are Bob and Di's first rally apparently -so you could say they jumped in at the deep end having us :Rofl1:and things can only get better:Doh:
    This afternoon Geo and the boys went down to the village in anticipation of the half naked ladies pictured by Jim at last years carnival, only to discover that the theme for this year was the French equiveant of Hamish type costumes, a naked ankle was all they managed to to take pics of in the parade
    serves them right:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    well as pammy said us fellas took no prisoners in our attempt to get here for the "naked lady Mardi Gra " it didn't happen :Sad:

    Note to self must have a word with Jim think he must have slipped a picture in from his Rio trip

    And I even tried to shift one of the Peage islands with the backend of my bus in the effort.

    The temperature been in the mid 80's since we arrived :thumb: ....can't wait to see a cloud again:Laughing:

    Having a great time with very nice funsters.

    OH nearly forgot "Wish you wer here":Laughing::Laughing::Laughing:

    Thanks all. it was nice to meet some of you, we are back home now in the Aveyron, we were only gone a few days and came home to dead plants as it seems hotter and dryer here than at parc verger, we can't even grow a lawn! we had to leave early for Kens dentist appointment, we have room to park a couple of motor homes in our garden, if anyone is travelling our way. bambi 2 :Smile :

    Hiya All!

    Just came back from Parc Verger! We are like steaks with stephanie:RollEyes: , it was so hot! Now my young lady is lying again and ordered not to move until her tendons get a bit better!

    That was a real pleasure for both of us to meet you ALL, and that includes the littles ones as well, let me tell you you have great children/granchildren, all of you!We enjoyed every minute of this meet (even with steph problems:Sad:....), and ...yes english BBQ are great !LOL! We do hope to meet again sometime in better conditions for steph and as a consequence for me . Bob and Di did really did all their best to make things easier for us. Many thanks to them, it was very much appreciated!:thumb::thumb:

    It would be nice Jim if we could have a place to put all the pics so Steph can select them and edit a nice diaporama ( she is a film editor since the 8th of july!):BigGrin:

    Well what can we say - Parc Verger is as quiet as the proverbial.......where did everyone go:Eeek:

    It was good to see so many funsters having a good time and the kids especially seemed to enjoy themselves.:Smile:

    Hope you all got home in one piece with no more robberies.

    We have no entertainment now.......:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Well we went to Couhe followed by tick 59, blisters, Penelope pitstop and bryan and suzy.

    We then left Bryan and suzy and Blisters, the following day saw the three remaining leave, tick 59 headed for futuroscope and PP and Haganaps headed for an aire in the vendee, followed by a day at aqualand before returning to the aire. We have said a sad farewell to PP and now headed further north toward poilet where I am sat in Mcdonalds before heading to another aire about 20 mins away on the beach.

    we have had such afab time, except for the sunburn, only popped in to mcdonalds to check the cricket score !! come on England.

    off to st michale de monts or something before spending our last night at honfleur on Tuesday.

    See you all soon and I hope all the RVers got home safely with no further incidents,.

    we had a really lovely time, and it was great to meet all the other funsters that arrived, glad that you are all still having a good time, we stayed an extra night over in the uk and arrived home incident free, yesterday pm. thanks to pammy and geo for this meet, the showers at parc verger really are fantastic, the site is good but as bob and di themselves will admit it doesn't really suit children for a long stay, but we still enjoyed ourselves, the village is very quaint, and orodor sur glane is not to be missed, Bob and Di must have wondered what had hit them when all the funsters arrived on site, :Smile: for those of you still in france enjoy the rest of your stay and hope you all have safe journeys home.

    Le Mont St Michele Paul, and it is stunning, especially at night when it is gradually illuminated. I hope the tide is out during your stopover.
    Honfleur is a huge Aire, and extremely handy for the town. A bottled beer on the quayside is about €7.00, however there is a Lidl close to the Aire if you aren't fussy.

    Enjoy the rest of your stay.

    Regards,

    Jock & Rita.
